With summer almost here, music festivals are cropping up all over California and beyond. Let’s hope the one you’re gearing up for is the anti-Fyre festival. Hopefully, you’re in for an epic time with friends that includes a gorgeous setting, a killer lineup of bands, and maybe even some additional fun like a sideshow stage, a gourmet food village and a little cannabis as well.
While festivals can be a blast, you may need to put some forethought into how to have the best time possible. Music festivals can be grueling, requiring some extra energy to make it through to the headlining band’s set.
Sometimes what you really need is a bit of calm to banish anxious thoughts if the crowds get too big. Then again, maybe you’re looking for something that will help intensify the music and stage visuals. Or perhaps you’re thinking you don’t want to drink and would rather go for an alcohol substitute that will help you socialize as well as enhance the music and atmosphere.
Here are four cannabis products that may do just the trick for whatever you need. They’re portable, shareable and sure to help you enjoy your music festival to the fullest.
Pacing yourself during the festival will be important if you want to enjoy the entire day or weekend. So, for an easy, smoke-free way to microdose some energy-boosting cannabis, reach for Level’s Elevate Tablinguals.
Tablinguals aren’t exactly edibles. You let the little mint-like tabs dissolve in your mouth. This way, the cannabinoids make their way into your bloodstream via the mucus membranes in your mouth. So, you’ll feel the tablinguals’ effects quicker than you would when eating an edible—generally in about 15 minutes.
The tablinguals are made with sativa cannabis strains, so they’ll give you the energy you need to keep dancing. Plus, Level formulates each tablingual with just 3 mg of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), making the amount a great starting place. For most folks, 3 mg is enough to feel some uplifting effects, but not enough to knock you out or make you feel out of it.
Because each tablingual is a microdose, it’s easy for everyone to customize their dose according to their needs. Is someone in your group a cannabis newbie? They can take one tablingual. Is someone else a regular consumer? They may start with two. You can even cut a tablingual in half for a truly customizable experience.
Nearly everyone would agree that the most social way to consume marijuana is by passing a joint around a circle of friends. So, if you’re feeling like you want to bring the group together or your aim is to make new friends at the festival, take along a box of mini pre-rolled sativa cannabis joints from Island.
Each mini joint is already rolled for you, using bleach-free paper. These pre-rolls are made with sativa cannabis strains, so they’ll give you stamina and help enhance the music.
Just remember that smoking marijuana is only cool at an outdoor venue where your smoke won’t bother others. And if you’re camping out at your festival, joints are a fire hazard, so use caution when lighting up or go for another consumption method altogether.
If you want to bring cannabis with you to the music festival, but you’re a little worried about consuming out in the open, consider the cannabis pastilles from Beboe. You can’t get much more discreet than this—they look like little candies that come in a gorgeous tin.
These sweet tart pastilles are another ideal option for sharing with a group and don’t involve vaping or smoking. Similar to the Level tablinguals, pop a pastille in your mouth and let it dissolve so that the cannabinoids enter the mucus membranes in your mouth.
Since they’re made with sativa strains of cannabis, they’ll help you feel energized, social and ready to enjoy the music. Each pastille contains 5 mg of THC and 3 mg of cannabidiol (CBD). So, you’ll still feel the psychoactive effects of the THC, but you’ll also reap the calming and pain-relieving benefits of CBD—just what you need if you’re on your feet dancing all day long.
If you’re excited about hitting a music festival, but the thought of the massive crowds has you feeling a little anxious or aggravated, bring along the Calm mini vape pen from Dosist. This pre-filled, disposable vape pen contains high-CBD cannabis oil—CBD has been shown to ease anxiety and promote a sense of calm. The oil also features cannabis terpenes known to impart a calm, uplifted mood, too, such as:
And vaping is the quickest way to feel cannabis’s effects. So, if you start to feel agitated, a couple of puffs from this vape pen will help soothe your frayed nerves in just a few seconds.
Since this vape pen is a mini, it’s easy to take along in your bag, purse or pocket. And because it’s disposable and pre-filled, you don’t have to think about charging it or messing around with oil cartridges while you’re trying to enjoy the music.
